inconvenient sewer hose container

We have a 2014 22 FB sport. This model has the sewer hose container attached to the bottom of the trailer. Not sure if this is the only model that has the storage for the sewer hose on the bottom of the trailer. My concern is that in a few years we may not be as able to get on the ground and slide under the trailer to retrieve this hose. Has any one faced this problem and created a better solution. Our model does not have a bumper. I am told by airstream they have created two bumpers for our model to store the sewer hose in, for about $4000.00. While I am glad there is a solution, and if it is the only one, in time we may go that route, I was wondering if any one else has tackled this problem is a more cost efficient way.

Mine has a tube forward of the axles that the hose stores in. I hardly need to get on the ground to get it. I do, of course, need to bend down but had to bend down in our older trailer that had bumper storage also. Read on here and check out a device called sewer solution. It may be less cumbersome and easier for you to manage. I have never seen one myself but they do sound useful and interesting.

I have a stainless steel tray which pulls from rear bumper, between the frame members.

Mine is down low just forward of the tandem axles. I don't have to get under the trailer since the cover is reachable at the edge of the trailer. Quite honestly if I can't bend down to open that tube, I'd not be able to hook the hose up to the drain, hook up the fresh water to the city inlet, pull out the electrical cord, hook up the satellite cable, and finally access the stabilizer jacks. So the day I can't bend down to these is the day you will see this trailer on the classifieds!

Our sewer hose storage tube is forward of the single axle and accessible at the edge of the lower trailer ... no lower than the sewer connections (in fact it's higher)...it sounds to me like your tube may have gotten mispositioned or shoved inward somehow...its opening should not be so far under the trailer that you have to slide under it to get the hose in and out of the tube.
